Brain Injury Lawyer for Orange County

One of the most common causes of brain injuries are motor vehicle accidents. They account for about 17.3% of all traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in the U.S., and are the number one cause of traumatic brain injury deaths. A person who has been in a car accident and hit their head may not be aware that they suffered a brain injury until much later. If you have been in a car accident, it is imperative that you consult your doctor immediately.

The impact of a car accident may not only affect your head, but your skeletal structure and internal organs, as well. An Orange County injury lawyer from our firm may be able to help you recover monetary compensation to pay for damages sustained in an accident. With over 30 years of personal injury experience, we have assisted dozens of clients, and received successful amounts of monetary compensation. Contact us today!

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The windshield is one of the most dangerous places that a passenger or driver can hit their head during a car accident, and the impact may lead to an open or closed head injury. A closed head injury means that the victim's skull is not fractured, but they may be in danger of bruising or tearing brain tissue, bleeding, and swelling. Surgery may be needed in order to relive swelling. If a doctor is not sought, and a car accident victim has brain swelling, they may suffer from a serious, sometimes fatal, brain injury. When a victim has an open head injury, they may need surgery to remove glass fragments and repair the skull. A concussion is the most common type of closed head injury. It may lead to a temporary loss of consciousness or, in some cases, a coma, as well as physical, psychological, and/or cognitive impairment.
